locked JT Alert 1.5 - Works great

Laurie,

Thanks for the much anticipated release of the JT Alert. I only started using it about a week ago (don't know why I waited over a year),but the update is working great for me.

I have HRD for my logging, and I saw two choices, I wasn't sure which was which, so I chose HRD V5 Access. I tried to log a QSO and it didn't work, so I changed it to the V5 ODBC DSN, set the path to the logbook (I use Win7 so it's that long path to get to it). Once that was correctly set, I got the message that my QSO was sent to the HRD. Very nice. What is the difference between HRD V5 Access and V5 ODBC DSN?

Also, loving the fact I can change colors based on LOTW, eQSL, or both. It's so nice that a stateside QSO tells me what state they are in too. I'm on 10 meters and everything is DX, so I haven't verified yet if the JT Alert tells you if you've worked a station on that band before.

What does Show Log Fields do besides show you what the DXCC entity is?

I prefer to have the audio alerts turned off permanently, however when I start the program they come on. It's an easy fix right on the outside of the program to turn it off, however I don't see an internal setting to check inside the configuration.

Thought I'd send this to the group in case others might be stuck at which HRD logbook option to use.
